this care for blossoms

she was a bit like spring;

wild as the wind and fickle

as the weather, but

her love ran deep

as tree roots.

~Alisha. Folk and Co.

what will I choose now?

inquiry for today~ some inner movement may be happening….

the mirrored ways

We are most human when we do no great things. We are not so important; we are simple dust and spirit—at best, loving midwives, participants in a process much larger than we. If we are quiet and listen and feel how things move, perhaps we will be wise enough to put our hands on what waits to be born, and bless it with kindness and care.

~Wayne Muller

One thought on “this care for blossoms

  1. I have always loved this paragraph, the Wayne Muller quote brings it to mind – “Her full nature, like that river of which Cyrus broke the strength, spent itself in channels which had no great name on the earth. But the effect of her being on those around her was incalculably diffusive: for the growing good of the world is partly dependent on unhistoric acts; and that things are not so ill with you and me as they might have been is half owing to the number who lived faithfully a hidden life, and rest in unvisited tombs.”
    George Eliot’s “Middlemarch”
